Virtual Competitive Events.  Each year thousands of competitors participate which means hundreds of volunteers are needed.  Nebraska FCCLA is required to provide 1 volunteer for every 3 participants. Event in virtual competition, this is still true.  This could be students, advisers, parents, and/or guests.  Each year we are very short on adult volunteers, specifically. While Nebraska has maintained a true volunteer status with these adult and youth volunteers, if the National association has no-show evaluators and is short evaluators, this may become a required participation component. *I will need Chapter Advisers, future FCS teachers and advisers, FCCLA Alumni, as well as recently graduated seniors, former State Officers, etc. to serve as volunteers for virtual competitive events.

Nebraska used standard-deviation applied to State qualifying scores to determine our qualifying teams in all events. Each Chapter Adviser is responsible for submitting the “Intent to Compete” form https://forms.gle/mfW2VjNMUVxwgnUZA by May 1st. Qualifiers will be still be submitted to National FCCLA by May 4th which must be done prior to individual Chapter registration.

Each Chapter Adviser is responsible for helping their students prepare for virtual competition. Please follow the revised guidance for Virtual STAR Event Competition: https://fcclainc.org/sites/default/files/Competitive%20Events%20Modifications%20for%20Virtual%20Competitions%202020%204.24.pdf

If your students qualified for the National STAR Event competition but will not be attending, please let the State Adviser know by 12:00 PM on Friday, May 1 so that another student may have the chance to represent Nebraska FCCLA.

STUDENTS

  • 2020 Virtual STAR Events: $25 per person

Once a state adviser qualifies their competitors for National STAR Events, the qualified event will be visible as item that can be added to the student’s registration.

There will be no State Registration or State fees this year.

 INDIVIDUAL EMAIL ADDRESSES

  • Every participant is required to have their own email address that they will have access to during the summer months provided at the time of registration. Duplicate email addresses are not permitted.
  • We advise using an alternate email address other than a school email so that the attendees have access to the platform through August. Providing a Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo, or any other trusted email service provider will help ensure participants receive all NLC related communications
  • Email addresses will be used to receive individualized login instructions and an individualized registration code to access the NLC virtual conference.
  • Providing correct and accessible emails for each registrant is the only way that all registered attendees do not miss out on important NLC communications and updates. The email provided should be accessible from the time of registration through August 1, 2020.

 REGISTRATION PAYMENT

  • Payment by credit card is required at the time of registration. The credit card provided will be charged for all registration fees on the invoice when the registration is submitted. Individual registrants can be put on their own invoice or multiple registrants can be combined on one invoice. The credit card does not have to be used for all invoices.
  • As an option, after credit card payment has been received you may send a school check to cover the costs of the chapter registrations.  Once the check has been received at National Headquarters a refund will be issued to the credit charged for the registration fees the same day the school check is received at National FCCLA.  Please note, the credit may not show up on the credit card statement for up to ten business days, depending on the payors credit processor.

HOME ADDRESS OR ALTERNATE SCHOOL MAILING ADDRESS

  • STAR Events competitors will only receive their medal if they have provided their home address or alternate school mailing address when registering for the conference. Regrettably, National FCCLA cannot hold medals until schools reopen.
